Safety Maintenance Work Begins on HWY 515 in Gilmer County

Safety Maintenance Work Begins

on Highway 515 in Gilmer County

ELLIJAY, Ga. – A Georgia DOT Maintenance crew will begin today to replace the obliterated and damaged reflective raised pavement markers on State Route (SR) 515 in Gilmer County.  Work will proceed daily Tuesday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. This maintenance operation and the lane closures it necessitates are weather permitting and subject to change.

Georgia DOT maintains over 2000 lane-miles in Northwest Georgia. Relatively harsh winter and snowplows used to clear the region’s interstates and state routes from snow and ice present a challenge to the DOT crews who are charged with maintaining lane markers on the roads.   These crews follow Federal Highway Administration standards for markings and do their best to keep up. They also work almost continuously restriping faded markers and replacing missing reflective raised pavement markers. Still, the volume of traffic on the highways, snow removal in the winter and sunny summer all weigh heavily on the durability of the lane markers.

Georgia Department of Transportation plans, constructs and maintains Georgia’s state and federal highways. We’re involved in bridge, waterway, public transit, rail, general aviation, bike and pedestrian programs. And we help local governments maintain their roads. Georgia DOT is committed to providing a safe, seamless and sustainable transportation system that supports Georgia’s economy and is sensitive to its citizens and its environment. For information on the Department of Transportation, visit http://www.dot.ga.gov.  You also may like us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/GDOTNW) and follow us on Twitter(https://twitter.com/GDOTNW).
